The slumping Bears will get the prime time treatment this week when they travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers. Quite simply, if the Bears have any plans of winning the NFC North, they must win this game. Meanwhile, the Packers will look to further themselves in the division race and bounce back from their second half collapse during a 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts. With the setup out of the way, let’s take a look at the Bears vs. Packers line, odds, and total.
The Bears vs. Packers line shows Green Bay is a 7.5-point home favorite. The game total is 45.5 points. The Packers are a -385 moneyline favorite, while the Bears moneyline is priced at +300.
It was more disappointment in Week 10 for Illinois bettors who backed the Bears against the Vikings. After a torrid 5-1 start, Chicago is now 5-5 wholly because of a feeble offense. More problematic is that there is no apparent solution in sight.
Despite the Packers’ suspect defense, Green Bay enters as more than a touchdown favorite. Oddsmakers clearly don’t believe Chicago can keep up on Sunday night.
Here’s a look at the Bears-Packers odds, betting line, moneyline and total as of January 22, 2021 2:04 PM (ET).

Bears vs. Packers Line
Here is the current Bears-Packers line, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
|Bears||+10 (-110)||+400||O 47.5|
|Saints||-10 (-110)||-500||U 47.5|
As of Monday afternoon, the Bears vs. Packers spread has Green Bay as more than a touchdown favorite. No surprise here. Regardless of what is, at times, the Packers’ inconsistent play, the mismatch at quarterback is enough to drive the line way up. The Bears simply cannot move the football, and that’s why oddsmakers at sportsbooks such as William Hill continue to show no belief in Matt Nagy’s squad.
When last we saw the Bears, Nick Foles was being carted off the field in a loss to the Vikings. Foles avoided serious injury but suffered a hip pointer. His availability for this week remains unknown, while Week 1 starter Mitchell Trubisky has been sidelined with a shoulder injury.
There may not be an answer to who will start for the Bears until later in the week.
Amazingly, the Bears have only been favored once in 2020, and that came back in Week 2 when they hosted the Giants.
The Packers are just 6-4 ATS this season. The Bears are 5-5 ATS.
The Bears are +300 on the moneyline. The Packers moneyline is priced at -385.
Much like the spread, the public will be inclined to back the Packers in this spot. They’re at home, they’re off a loss, and it’s Aaron Rodgers in prime time. It wouldn’t be a shock to see Green Bay’s moneyline number move north of -400.
Bears vs. Packers Odds Over/Under
The over-under for the Bears and Packers Week 12 game is 45.5 with PointsBet.

Meanwhile, Green Bay has cashed the over in 6 of its 10 games.
